cut out poetry.

I recently came back to this fun way of writing after about 10 years. I loved creating slightly abstract poems in college by way of black out or cut out poetry, but somewhere along the way, it got lost. 

My wonderful friend Bee reminded me of it in one of her Patreon posts, and one evening after work, I spotted some books for free on somebody's wall. I took one home. I didn't want to read that book, but I did want to cut it up and make something of my own.

I spent an evening cutting out any words that caught my eye, and then tried to piece them together into something resembling sense. I had an idea of what I wanted to create, but as I went along, the words found me and turned into something completely different. 

I've spent a good few more hours since then creating little bits of poetry and prose. Some of which have inspired stories. I kind of really like the ones that seem unfinished, too. 

It's such a lovely process, and I really encourage you to give it a go!

  1. Gorgeous, especially the 'fallen from outer space' one - such a clever idea x

  2. I love these, they are so cute and they look real pretty as should frame some!

  3. Emily Dickinson's definition of poetry has always been one of my favorites: "If I read a book and it makes my whole body so chilly no fire can warm me, I know it is poetry." Due to the fact that I am a researcher and a provider of UK dissertation writing services, my students frequently fail to submit their dissertations and other assignments on time.

  4. How wonderful to rediscover your passion for writing after a decade! Crafting abstract poems through blackout or cut-out techniques sounds intriguing. By the way, if you're in Florida and dealing with probate matters, the small estates affidavit could be a helpful resource for you.
